The Olympiakos women’s basketball team returns to its European duties. The Greek champions welcome Riga at 18:30 at SEF in the most important match of the second group match. After the 85-69 over Kayseri in Turkey in the premiere of the competition, the “red and white” want “2 on 2”.
Thanos Niklas told olympiacossfp.gr: “Tomorrow, we have our first home European game against TTT Riga. A team with a tradition in Europe, who came to our group from the Euroleague qualifiers. They are a strong athletic team, with a physical game, that we have to respond to and be ready for a lot of contact and a fast pace.
We have to control their surprises and bring the ball close to the basket. We need 40 minutes of concentration and to give 100% of our energy, to bring an important victory for the continuation”.
For her part, Brooke Williams noted that: “We are looking forward to the match against TTT Riga, it is our first at home in Europe. We had a good week of training and preparation for this game. We know it won’t be an easy match, but if we just play our game, we’ll be on top.”
